VADAPALANI

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Long ago, there lived a king by name Yuvanaswa, a descendant of the solar dynasty. Mandhata, his son, brought the entire world under his rule. Once, Sage Narada. Appeared before him in a jovial mood. On the King's asking Narada to tell him the cause of his cheerfulness, Narada said that he -was coming after a holy bath in the Adi Setu at Vedaranyam and praised and admired the holiness and sanctity of this Punyateertha.

When Rama was returning from Lanka after killing Ravana, he was possessed of the sin of Brahmahatti. The sagesfollowing him advised him to pray to Lord Siva. When Rama began to sit for penance along with the 68,000 sages, after preparing a site in the middle of the dam, one sage by name Jabali told him that the mount Satyagiri, wherefrom the river Satyavathi had its course towards the north, was better suited for the purpose and it was then a part of the dam, having been thrown into the sea by a monkey by name Gavaya and that the river had merged into the sea.

Rama conducted an austere penance from this site, and Lord Siva appeared before him in the form of a linga. Surrounded by luminous splendor, on the fullmoon day of the month of Panguni,
when the star Uttara was reigning, along with the holy water of Manikarnika.
